I did a quick winterization with compressed air only. Didn't use anti-freeze because we are going camping for 3 days this weekend and after our return headed to San Antonio for a week or so.

We have been keeping the thermostat at 60 deg F for the past week to prevent freeze damage overnight. We've had a couple of nights were temps dipped below freezing. I am very impressed by my solar system. When I checked on the camper today before blowing out the lines, my batteries were at 100% and I know that the heater had been running all night.

New cool gel queen mattress for us. Have to let it sit for a day or two to regain shape from vacuum packing and to air out. 20 some days and we head south for Fort Wilderness for 2 weeks so I'll be doing more to get ready.

Do you have heat in the compartments where water is? Mine does and I set the heat at 40 in the winter here and a rank of propane lasts about a month. My panels keep the 2 bats up. Class c in Jersey. I also just blow out lines. We go once a month unless it snows.

A long winter's sleep....

Prepped the TT for winterizing removing any liquids, food items, etc. This time of year seems to come much too fast. It seems 5 months lasts only 1 month and winter drags forever.

We've only had our 2306 since September 17th, so I have a long ways to go...

Broom mount (found a stud!) and command hook for the dust pan....


Clock, with temperature. Used a Spax screw. They're weird screws.


Super duper important one!


Potty seat holder, but only temporary (so, command hook). The green tape is holding the molding on while the glue dries. Wasn't properly secured (assuming the staples went too deep and broke through the plastic).


Not permanently mounted yet (so no pic), but we got (at walmart) a clicking kind (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0024AKCTS) of paper towel holder. VERY cool, cause it doesn't unwind during travel.

I've removed 3 so far of the "walls" inside cabinets/storage areas. Under the bathroom sink it probably doubles the amount of storage area (but now I can *see* the pipes...OH NO). Also in the under-bunk area (now I can *see* the water heater...OH NO) and front storage area.

I have probably $200 worth of hooks and hangers and such to figure out where they go and what we want, and then return the rest.

Still need to figure out shelving in most every cabinet. That's going to be a chore.

Last trip out will probably be this weekend. Sad.........

Picked up the camper (yay!) found I had a 125psi tire at 80psi (boo!). Found a nail. Almost definitely got picked up at the repair shop (TPMS would likely have showed otherwise) but can't prove it.

Cleaned the awning, DW cleaned the inside, mowed the grass and mows plants down. Winterized the trailer and flushed out holding tank.
The park model is way till May next year.

Awning shouldn't need cleaning, you never use it in the rain.
